Simmons & Simmons is a leading international law firm, providing clients with commercially aware legal advice, whenever and wherever they need it. We have over 900 legal staff situated in key business and financial centres across Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Our philosophy for international growth has been guided by the needs of our clients - to build practices around local lawyers who understand the culture, business and languages of the countries and regions in which we operate. We have developed a closely knit and cohesive network of lawyers who address local legal issues and business needs as part of a global service.
We have organised ourselves in line with our clients’ requirements into key practice areas and sector groups. Our sector focus allows us to bring together specialists from across our practice areas into dedicated groups. This enables us to better appreciate the environment in which our clients operate and to work with them to achieve their objectives. Our key industry sectors are: Asset Management & Investment Funds, Financial Institutions, Life Sciences and Telecoms, Media & Technology (TMT). We also focus on the E&I market, in particular through our international projects and construction teams.
The core practice areas, from which we draw our sector teams, are: corporate & commercial, dispute resolution, employment, pensions & employee benefits, EU, competition & regulatory, financial markets, information, communications & technology, intellectual property, projects, real estate and tax.
